That is great!. I really want to build that ... I just wish I had more pieces :-)

i can try

You could get rid of that whole front barrel and save pieces, along with make the gun smaller.

But then it wouldnt look like a sniper :P

Who cares about looks, it should be about performance.

agent harmsy (author)TheChemiker2010-06-22

Oh come on. The design is half the fun! I would think that everyone that has come up with a replica model (and there are some really good ones out there) would disagree with you. Performance is good, but design makes it better :D

TheChemiker (author)agent harmsy2010-06-22

This isn't a replica.

agent harmsy (author)TheChemiker2010-06-23

No, but it is designed as a sniper, and characteristic sniper rifle features are an elongated barrel, a bipod, and a scope. If you take off the long barrel, its just another rifle. In response to your other comment, i quote my last sentence: "Performance is good, but design makes it better :D" For isntance the amount of comments I have seen criticising "the stock looks weak, its skeleton-ey, it looks like a block..." If we didn't design these models with a bit of creativity, they would all look the same, and half the fun wouldn't be there. Take the k'nex miter saw, one of the most highly rated k'nex 'ibles, and it is also featured. That saw is ALL design and looks. Sure, performance is a good thing, but if you can make it look good as well, then why wouldn't you? I might also add that there is a... small thing out there called art. :D

Mepain would disagree with you.

TheChemiker (author)DJ Radio2010-06-22

Then I agree with Mepain. If you aren't replicating, it should be about performance.

It's nice, but could you give some credit to kNeXFreek?

Vynash (author)knexfreakbuilder2010-06-20

Thanks for giving him credit :)

Not bad, but wouldn't the ammo hit the tip of the barrel the way you have it?
